Bronze & Silver Gliding Experiences

Gliding Trial Lesson - K13 Glider near Milton Keynes

Try a gliding trial flight and experience the thrill of silent flight with one of our instructors!

Launch to 2,000 feet above the ground, for up to 25 mins flying (though, in less perfect conditions, it could be less than 15 minutes) for just £75.00 (our Bronze Gliding Experience) or get x2 2,000 ft launches, guaranteeing more time in the air, for just £135.00 (our Silver Gliding Experience)!

In either case, your instructor will brief you on the ground beforehand about the glider, the flight, and what to expect; you fly in the front cockpit of our two seater glider and the instructor flies from the rear cockpit, which has full dual controls.

After release from the tug aircraft the instructor will, if you wish, show you the effects of the controls on the glider’s path, and you may take control under his guidance. In favourable conditions, the instructor may be able to guide the glider into rising air and you may climb in the ‘thermal’ up to the bottom of the clouds - giving you longer to take in the stunning Northamptonshire countryside, with places such as Milton Keynes, Northampton, Birmingham and Oxford viewable on the horizon (weather dependent).

Once closer to the ground, the instructor will explain how he is setting up for the approach and landing, for which you, in the front, have a grandstand view, bringing your gliding trial lesson to a close.

Both our bronze and silver gliding trial lessons make ideal presents, particularly for Christmas, Birthdays, Mother's & Father's Days, as well as tasters for those wishing to experience flight or try something new. All of our fully qualified British Gliding Association certified instructors are also volunteers, meaning that unlike other operations, are fully passionate and love sharing their enthusiasm with our guests.
